Coin collecting

Not sure where to post this but it has to do with a quarter my aunt showed me. It looks authentic but it has Washington's head on both sides. One side is dated 1994 and the other is 1987. I told her to take it to a collector to look at but I wanted to resource this site as well.

Anyone know anything? Is this just a trick coin you can get for fooling people? All input appreciated.

Magic shop two headed coins can be discovered by dropping them on a hardwood floor. One of the heads is actually a hollow out head that snaps over the tails side of a real coin.

Doesn't mean that your aunt's coin is that.... but US Mint two headed error coins would have the same date... Which makes me lean toward magicians or joke material.
